#2509795 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by legaleaglewingsfan on Yesterday, 10:54 AM

There is actually a trending #wearethe5thline by some BJ fan in anticipation for the playoffs. Shirts and such are being made and sold here in Central Ohio. 

 

I am also of the CBJ cheering group and unless they meet the Wings will be cheering for them. This of course does not bode well for my marriage to the Pens fan. Oh well go BJ's.

Hockey used to be fun.

That Cleary hit on Phaneuf at 13:09 still brings a smile to my face. I remember that one well. Oh and I forgot how many people got Kronwalled during that '08 run.




#2509910 Jack Adams award discussion and speculation

Posted by Euro_Twins on Yesterday, 08:15 PM

The fact that Babcock hasn't won this trophy despite his incredible career is a bit of a joke.
When the team was stacked he didn't win because they were too good. Now he can't win because other teams did better. Give the man the award. He deserves it.


Has ever even been nominated?

Several coaches have won with stacked teams, bylsma, boudreau, vigneault. Others have won because they coached through adversity, it seems they just give it to whoever they feel like, no real rhyme or reason. If ever there were a year for babs to win it would be this year.
Also last year babs was in 10th place in voting for it

#2509849 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by dirtydangles on Yesterday, 05:01 PM

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

#2509643 Advice for Trip to Detroit

Posted by loutswings on 14 April 2014 - 05:55 PM

I always like to park next to Fox and Hockeytown cafe. It was so nice to hitch a ride on the free shuttle's and after the game grab a burger at Hockeytown Cafe. 




#2509553 Kyle Quincey Appreciation thread

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 14 April 2014 - 11:42 AM

I appreciate the improvement that Q made over this last stretch. He didn't suck as much, and I found myself saying GODDAMMIT QUINCEY much less.

And good luck on his journey to another team next season. Wish you all the best Q! Sayonara!

Usually takes me a game or two into the series to gain inspiration for a new playoff opponent, but here goes:

I have to be so circumspect this time...my housemate is a die hard Boston fan.  I really have to tread lightly until this is over.  Of course, if we win, it will get worse, but I don't care.  GO WINGS!!!!




#2509466 Preds Allowed 0 SH Goals in 82 Game Season

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 14 April 2014 - 12:49 AM

That's a pretty amazing accomplishment, I was shocked when I saw it was the first time in NHL history. 

 

As always, all hockey related news regardless of team is welcome here from respected members like PredsFan, thanks for continuing to provide quality information in posts about our one-time rivals. Hopefully things go a bit better for your boys next season with a healthy Rinne and a fresh start.

 

Except Weber, he's still a nerd. :P

#2509438 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by LAWings on 13 April 2014 - 07:54 PM

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.

 

Thank you gents for sucking so bad.
